      All:

      On October 18th from 9:00a.m. to 9:00p.m.  the USGS Native Bee Inventory and Monitoring Lab in Beltsville, Maryland will be open to anyone who would like to visit and work on native bees, learn bee identification, or identify their specimens.

      We can provide a place to stay for people who are coming from out of town.


      Directions to the lab follow:



      Directions to the  USGS Native Bee Inventory and Monitoring Lab

      Sam Droege's Work Number:  301 497 5840
                          Home Number:  301 390 7759



      Directions from the intersection of the Washinton Beltway (495) and the Baltimore Washington Parkway (295).

      Travel NORTH outside of the Beltway towards Baltimore on 295.

      In approximately 5 miles and about 3 exits you will come to an exit for Powdermill Road

      Take the single exit ramp to Powdermill Road and turn LEFT

      (NOTE:  The  main campus and the visitor's center for Patuxent Wildlife Research Center is to the Right, but our lab is located on Beltsville Agriculture Research Center property and therefore you must turn LEFT towards Beltsville)

      Travel about 1.5 miles.

      On your right you will see Entomology Road, this is a marker that your turn is coming soon.

      Take the next right onto Center Road.

      Travel to the last lab building on the left (there are no lab buildings on the right).

      This will be building 308 which is very clearly marked.

      Park in the parking lot out front.

      At the door hit the button on the black box, wait for a reply, and then tell them you are here to visit me and they will let you in.

      Alternatively, if someone is going in or out you can go directly in.

      I am  in room 124.

      Door's usually open.

      From Field Work

      Not the mud slick,
      not the black weedy water
      full of alder cones and pock-marked leaves.


      Not the cow parsley in winter
      with its old whitened shins and wrists, its sibilance, its shaking.


      Not even the tart green shade of summer thick with butterflies
      and fungus plump as a leather saddle.


      No. But in a still corner,
      braced to its pebble-dashed wall,
      heavy, earth-drawn, all mouth and eye,


      the sunflower, dreaming umber.
      -Seamus Heaney
